66-5305 Art As Spiritual Practice


According to anthropologist William Irwin Thomson, ‘Art is the last religion.’ This class combines actual artmaking with research to explore how artists make use of their skills as a way of exploring ‘the spiritual’in their lives. The concept of artist as shaman is balanced with the idea of art itself as a spiritual experience, in work ranging from the Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence to the light installations of James Turrell.
